Harris re-signed with the Buccaneers on Friday on a one-year deal, Carmen Vitali of the team's official website reports.
Harris was acquired off waivers by the Bucs last preseason before the team placed him on injured reserve prior to Week 1. However, Tampa subsequently waived him the following week and re-signed him after Week 7 in order to boost depth at cornerback. He ended up appearing in 10 games. Should he ultimately make the 53-man roster after training camp, he projects to again provide depth in the secondary.
Harris is not expected to be tendered a contract by the Buccaneers, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Harris is a restricted free agent but would become an unrestricted free agent March 13 if the team doesn't extend an offer. The 25-year-old made 10 tackles (nine solo) and three passes defended across 10 games last season.
Harris will start at cornerback in Week 13 against the Panthers, with Brent Grimes (knee), Carlton Davis (knee) and M.J. Stewart (foot) all inactive, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.
Harris has seen action in 26 games with the Saints and Buccaneers over two-plus seasons. However, he's logged just one defensive snap this season for Tampa, with the rest of his work coming on special teams. He'll be expected to help contain a Cam Newton-led Panthers passing attack that gets Devin Funchess (back) back from a one-game absence Sunday.

Harris (hamstring) was released from injured reserve Tuesday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Harris will now be free to sign with another team. The third-year pro made 30 tackles and two pass breakups for the Saints over the previous two seasons, and he'll likely look for a special teams role to get his foot in the door.
Harris (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.
Harris appears to have exacerbated a hamstring injury sustained in training camp. The 2016 undrafted free agent and former Saint will miss the chance to play against his former team Sunday, and will miss at least the first eight games of the season on IR.
Harris (hamstring) has been deemed doubtful for Sunday's game against the Saints.
Harris practiced in full throughout the week until missing Friday's session, so his hamstring injury must be relatively new.

Harris (undisclosed) did not practice Wednesday, Greg Auman of The Athletic Tampa Bay reports.
A string of absences is unlikely to bode well for Harris moving forward. As it currently stands, Harris finds himself clawing for a roster spot. Availability for the team's final two preseason games will be crucial for the 25-year-old out of Texas A&M.
Harris was claimed off waivers by the Buccaneers on Sunday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
The Buccaneers add another cornerback to their roster with the position currently riddled with injuries. However, with the secondary still expected to be healthy by the start of the regular season, Harris will have a difficult time making Tampa Bay's final roster.
